I bought the Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen completely on a whim one day, whilst perusing the Feelunique website looking for a new cuticle oil. Most cuticle oils come in a glass bottle, with a nail polish style brush, which you ‘paint’ on to your cuticles.
However, I don’t love how greasy they can leave the nails, and they sometimes dull the nail polish you’re wearing too, so I’ve been trying to find an alternative, which would give me the hydration of a cuticle oil, but with a more lightweight formula, and the Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen might just be one of my top five beauty discoveries this year.
I’ve heard a lot about Margaret Dabbs from bloggers, but the brand never really appealed to me. I don’t know why, but it’s just not a brand I hear anyone but bloggers talk about, so I didn’t know if it was just *one* of those overhyped by bloggers kind of brands.
Now, my nails are terrible, and they always have been. They break the second they reach a mm in length, they peel and split, and it’s mostly due to some of my vitamin deficiencies. I bought the Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen without reading the description.
I just saw that it had a pen format, and it was a serum rather than an oil, and it was in my basket. Only after seeing some very surprising results after two weeks, did I actually do the normal thing, and look at the claims, and wow I’m impressed.
The Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen is £11.90, and is packaged within a yellow squeezy plastic tube. The delivery system is kinda weird, in that you have a pointed nib, and when you (gently) squeeze the tube, the white coloured serum ‘appears’ at the tip of the pen.
I have since read some reviews of people complaining about the packaging, but it’s brilliant. You literally dab a pin-head sized amount of serum at the base of each nail and massage it in. It takes three seconds max, and there’s no greasiness and no down-time whilst you wait for it to absorb.
So what are the claims of the Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen?
“A powerful serum pen formulated to help hydrate, strengthen and protect the nails & cuticles and to help promote healthy nail growth. The perfect solution for weak, brittle, dry, flaky and thickened nails. The handy pin pointer tube applicator makes the lightweight serum easy to use for when you’re on the go and want to apply throughout the day.“
I thought the Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen might be nice for adding hydration, but it has genuinely transformed my nails and my cuticles too. I didn’t expect to see a benefit in my nails, but my nails are longer, stronger and more resilient than they have ever been, and it is 100% down to the Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen.
I realised how amazing a product it was when I accidentally trapped my fingers in a drawer, and that would’ve caused carnage for my nails eight weeks ago, but my nails were unscathed as was my nail polish. Even my nail polish is lasting longer, as my nails are so much healthier, with my last polish wearing for twelve days without chipping which has never happened for me before.
I can’t rave about this Margaret Dabbs Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum Pen enough, and it’s wowed me enough that I’ve just bought the Pure Repairing Pen, a back-up of this pen, and also the hand cream from the range, as I need to know what the other products are like.
This isn’t a sponsored post. I bought the product myself, and the brand has no idea who I am, but it’s incredible. If you have dry, unsightly cuticles or rubbish nails like I did, this product is quite frankly a miracle in a tube – you have to try it!
